268 Meadow Lane
Southampton, New York 11968


For the eighth consecutive year, Uniting Against Lung Cancer (UALC) will kick off the summer season in Southampton with its annual “Kites for a Cure®” event at Coopers Beach on Memorial Day Weekend. Rain or shine, on Saturday, May 24th from 4:00-6:00 p.m., the family kite fly is expected to bring more than 1,000 kite flyers and friends to the beach to benefit lung cancer research and raise awareness for the nation’s number one cancer killer.
“Kites for a Cure” is the most affordable fundraiser in the Hamptons, and a great event for family fun. All proceeds will go to Uniting Against Lung Cancer’s national lung cancer research grant program. For a donation of $30, guests will get a high-quality kite to decorate on-site with pictures, names, or their own special message. Chocolate chip cookies from Tate’s Bakeshop and beverages provided by Hint are available throughout the afternoon. A “Family of Flyers” can participate for $300. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. The event has an underwriting sponsorship from Rechler Equity Partners and the Hamptons Business District at Gabreski.
